"Mein Führer, I can walk!"

Stephen Colbert is the man. On his show The Colbert Report (-ert and -ort both spoken softly) last week, he proposed a kind of Mutually Assured Destruction as a possible solution to the Ground Zero Mosque quagmire while paying homage to Peter Sellers and Dr. Strangelove. I was simply blown away. If you haven’t seen the movie watch the best two parts where Peter Sellers is acting as Dr. Strangelove, a scientist and former Nazi as he explains The Doomsday machine or his plans for the Apocalypse. It’s absolutely genious. Here you can watch Colbert’s whole edition of “The Word,” where he explains in character how a deterrent to Muslims building a moque near the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York would work. Another comedian, Pat Condell is more direct and less sly, but just as biting in his criticism – though the bit about the Mosque opening on Sept. 11, 2011, which isn’t true, apparently. But whatever your political leanings you have to enjoy the Colbert.
